Yeah, I'd spend more and get one of the 1911s, for your first. Only $300 and you get a wonderful piece that will probably last you a lifetime.

I won't knock the Hi power clone because I've not shot or handled one, but I've come to trust Sarco and anything they offer so I'd confidently buy one.

But I am a willing victim in such things, gladly leaping in head first just because they seem unpopular or looked down upon. I've found many gems looking where others' noses don't allow them to see.

Then yes, were I you I'd jump on it and cross your fingers. Most would tell you not to touch. If you want something cheap but functional and proven reliable get a HiPoint.

They're ugly but they go bang and have lifetime warranty and are under 200 brand new!

My dad owned a highpoint a few years ago. We literally drove nails in with it but it's a little to heavy for what I am looking at, it is my second option though they are all American made in Ohio. I have also been looking at star model B's which are rubbing around $225 on sarco and have good reviews on YouTube. From what I've been looking at they would be a good choice for a low price pistol.. I am not familiar with the 9mm parabellum round though which all of these imports seem to take.

9mm parabellum is just 9mm, or 9mm nato, or 9x19mm... aka 9mm. The most common centerfire handgun round known. The Star model B is a great gun, as are all stars. I own two Firestars in 9mm and 45acp and they are flawless. Great guns!

While on the topic is there a difference between that and a 9mm luger? I'm sorry if I am asking dumb questions while I know a decent deal of handgun knowledge I do not know very much

Same thing. It's not known for being a hunting round.

I know a few people that have killed with one though. While going through kemo my dad went with one a killed a doe with it. I do not plan on pushing the limits and shooting far just something to have to shoot up close or if I do happen to make a bad shot or one of the guys I hunt with do I can put an animal out of its misery.

A 9mm would suffice just fine for your purpose then.

You can still scout decent deals on the less expensive pistols....here's a few off the top of the noggin:

-Taurus PT709, 809, 24/7 all in 9mm
-Ruger P94
-EAA Witness

All in my opinion decent pistols for the money. Maybe Not the best, but far from the worst
